Brexit protesters take to streets of London

Thousands gathered in London's Trafalgar Square earlier this week, defying pouring rain to vent their anger at the result of the June 23 referendum on leaving the EUCrowds are set to march through London on Saturday in protest against Britain’s vote to leave the EU, which has plunged the government into political turmoil and left the country deeply polarised. Inside the halls of power, the favourites to succeed Prime Minister David Cameron in the ruling Conservative Party have been pushing for a delay in starting the process that will see Britain leave the 28-member European Union. Contender Michael Gove said Friday he had “no expectation” that Article 50 — the formal procedure for leaving the EU — would be invoked this year, echoing similar comments from his frontrunner rival Theresa May.
